New Jersey, New York, Los Angeles

New Jersey/New York:
1. commuted from La Guardia Airport in New York to Jersey City via rented van & subway while lugging our bags (there were 16 of us, so we were quite a sight to look at)
2. saw Ground Zero (World Trade Center)
3. slept in a convent (trial ba ito for my future? why nat?!)
4. met the other wonderful Hangad members who are now based in the US
5. learned how to commute from Jersey City to New York City (take Bus 51!)
6. commuted from 14th St. in New York City to Jersey City via subway & bus... BY MYSELF! Ü
7. ate New York street food!
8. ate lunch at Central Park & lounged at Sheep Meadow (while sighting some hot bods haha!)
9. BROADWAY!!! (Mamma Mia!, Avenue Q, & Sweeney Todd)

Los Angeles/Torrance:
1. went to Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills (kaso puro designer shops pala ron. my gad!)
2. went to Hollywood
3. shopped at a bargain CD store (WINNER!!!)

Favorite Hangad Highlights:
1. expanded my vocabulary (e.g. BORKY means 'scary' *don't ask me why*)
2. noticed that the sound technicians I worked with during the concerts had common names (e.g. John, Bob, Tim, Neil)
3. got to be 'backstage' & 'behind the scenes' with great performers! (ala 'Almost Famous' effect)
4. spent a marvelous 4 weeks with some of God's most precious messengers of love & grace

Deux, Clare, Meechee, Mariel, Teen, Rose, Elaine, JC, Louis, Migs, Prime, Ron, Toby, & of course Mother Domi, Ernest, TJ, & Bea: Thanks for being so accomodating, warm, & patient with me. The memories you have shared with me will always be remembered & cherished. Congratulations to all of you, for your past, present, & future achievements. Kita-kita na lang sa mata!

Tito George, if you're reading this, pasensya na at ito lang ang nasulat ko. Ngayon lang kasi ako nakapag-update ng blog. Medyo lumipad na ang mga memories ko about our trip there. Ang hindi ko talaga makalimutan ay yung INIT! Para palang Pilipinas ang weather doon. Oo, lumalamig sa gabi, pero grabe ang heat! Now I know bakit Miami Heat ang pangalan ng team.

Tita Ching, Tito Amador, Jamie, Tita Tess, Tito Dante, Tito George, Tita Lea, Tita Mina: THANK YOU! Grabe, kahit inaapi nyo ang pagsho-shopping ko, ok lang. I really enjoyed your company, pati na ang yummy food, syempre.

We're now in New Jersey, pero most of our gimiks are to New York City. Teaser about what I've been doing so far: BROADWAY! Matts, lagi kitang naaalala pag nanonood ako! Sobrang ma-e-enjoy mo talaga ang mga napanood ko! Kwento & pix soon! Hirap kasi mag-upload. Maraming gustong mag-internet. hehehe
